Excerpt: ONE thing that I see all phone reviews MISSING is that if you have to use your hands and you tend to pinch the phone between your ear and your shoulder while trying to talk, you cover up the MIC and then you sound like crap to whomever you are talking to. It IRRITATES me that just about every phone review that I have seen has completely missed this very important part of the phone. Casio should have relocated the mic to a different spot.
Pros: Feels solid, cool graphics, Flashlight feature is cool, outdoor appz that are loaded are really cool.
Cons: battery life sucks, mic location sucks, charger cover sucks
Excerpt: So aside from most of the other issues I have read here I have a couple more. Everyonce in a while my main screen will go black and will not come back on for quite some time. Sometimes leaving it plugged in will bring it back. Sometimes taking the battery out and restarting it works. There are many different things I've tried that occasionally work, but it's different everytime. Now my other problem is with the alarm clock.
Pros: Great durable phone.
Cons: Too slow., Software Problems, Hard to find accessories.
Excerpt: After about six months of having this phone the charger wouldn't work when plugged directly into the phone,so i have been using the dock and as of five hours ago its not working either. I have had this phone since December of 2009, I have taken care of it like a mother would a baby, I know this because I am an aunt, and well this phone is horrible. Don't buy it please for the sake of your sanity.
Excerpt: it is difficult to get the phone in the charging cradle and my front display comes on randomly all throughout the night constantly waking me up. but other than the charging problem this is the best phone i have ever owned.
Excerpt: OK I'm rugged on my phones, drop them, they get wet, I live on the ocean most of the time! Onr of the features i was excited about was the tides, carring my phone is easier than carring around tide charts all the time! Well the GPS will tell you where the closest tide is however in my case it's over 75 miles away! As any sailor will tell that's not even close to what the tide is near you! I figuerd I could even do some math but there is not one location in the sound!
Excerpt: I previously owned the g'z one (and am currently using it again) The battery performance became week and the rock was cheaper than a new battery. After my first rock's speaker phone died (among other things) I received a new one from Verizon. The new one and the old freezes up and is slow like a computer to load different pages.
Pros: the name
Cons: cheep plastic, Breaks easy charge cradel failed two days after I purchased it! slow prossesing
Excerpt: I luv this new Gz One Rock, seems to do all that it is supposed to do with ease, including testing and email. I had/have a Gz One, the first one that came out, I have stored it for a backup. I have had no trouble, concerns, problems with any of the Casio's.
Excerpt: I love this phone. If you are an outdoor person this is the phone for you. If you are a text and app nut get a smart phone, and don't waist your time with lofty expectations for this unit. I have kayaked, canoed, swam, etc. with my phone with no problems. My kids play swimming games by dropping my phone to the bottom of an eight foot pool. I do not recommend this as it is not built for this depth.
Excerpt: This phone has been great I am around the water and boats alot so I needed a waterproof cell phone it is definately that. those who posted reviews saying the ROCK died from water damage must have had a faulty one or maybe one of the ports was not completely closed before immersion. I have put mine in a fish tank for ten minutes with the power ON and called it. still works. froze it in a block of ice(power OFF). still works beautifully.
